"I was messaged about a band on our page by Ritchie Randall, one of the guitar players from the band Gravehuffer from the tornado ridden city of Joplin Missouri. For starts i loved the hell out of their name, totally original. These guys have been tearing up the scene since 2008, when they were formally known as Krom. Let me tell you if you love hardcore punk mixed with some seriously raw grindcore, you will enjoy this shit! Gravehuffer have a unique hardcore i have not heard in a very long time myself. These cats go from bringing the angry pit action to a slow grind pace. Gravehuffer are influenced by NAPALM DEATH, BRUTAL TRUTH,& CELTIC FROST along with many other old school metal bands. When i listened to their 20 song, yes i said 20 song album called " BLASPHEMUSIC", i was taken back to the old school shit i've loved since i was a teenager. This album has everything a punk/ metal head could ever want. Although the recording is raw as hell, it definitely does not take away from their music and talent whatsoever.I really liked the mix of multiple vocals that goes along with their tuned down guitars, and punk influenced percussion.These guys are also on a compilation album called "HORRIFIC UNHOLY NOISE". Gravehuffer call themselves Metal/Crust, which i got a kick out of. These guys definitely enjoy playing together, and it shows. Back in the days there was a hardcore punk band called the DEHUMANIZERS that i loved the shit out of, and i never thought i would hear any band like them again till i listened to Gravehuffer. I really did enjoy listening to this album, and their remakes of CELTIC FROST's "Into Crypts of Rays" & The RAMONES " Commando" put the icing on the cake. These guys have played out alot by looking at their band page, and coming up for them, they are opening up for NORMA JEAN in Joplin. So if you have not heard or seen these guys, you must! GRAVEHUFFER is Larry Deardorff- Drums, James Hiser- Vocals, Mike Jilge- Bass, Ritchie Randall- Guitar, Seth Ledbetter- Guitar. Review by Jerry-DOWN DEEP METAL REVIEW."

"New Review via Burning Salts Zine (Issue 3 Oct. 2014) out of Salt Lake City! Going short and sweet with this review. The album is not short nor sweet however. Almost an hours worth of tunes that are ugly, uglier, and fugly! It's always awesome to talk about a band that gets to avoid being put in a pigeonhole genre type. Gravehuffer truly though do a lot and calling them one genre would be silly. The Joplin, MO five piece pummel you with thrash to grind to crust and all the crap in between. The vocals jump all over the damn place, offering the already diverse set of tunes more dynamics with all the boogers flying everywhere - Bryer Wharton"  Bryer Wharton, Burning Salts

"I really enjoy the first half of the album because the production value is a bit better which helps you enjoy every part of the band a bit better. My choice cuts for this part of the album definitely have to be “Circle of Blood” and “Book of Enoch”. These two tracks are incredibly heavy and remind me of bands like Crowbar mixed in with a hint of punk. The second half of the album is rawer, giving Gravehuffer DIY props. My choice cuts for this portion of the album have to be “Gutsick” and “Inherit the Wasteland”. With Gutsick, you really get to hear their hardcore punk/grind influences with the tempo and the songwriting. “Inherit the Wasteland” brings you some melodic edge, which is also a good representation of their diversity in writing. Directly after the nice melodic intro, you get crushed by hammering riffs and blastbeats at high speeds. One final shout out goes to their vocalist, I really dig how he lays down his screaming. It sounds really intense, but uniq"  Matt Dorr, Murdered Culture - A Music Journal
